Fear Spread of Plan
Groat was particularly concern-
ed about the spread of such a

other state schools, particularly
community colleges and universi-
ties like Oakland where many stu-
dents pay their own way.
Another factor cited by Groat
is that in a limited space situa-
tion a school is likely to accept
the student who has to pay full
tuition over a student who might
get a discount, particularly with
the possibility of reduced legisla-
tive apportionment.
Groat and Hampton, along with
MSU officials, indicate that re-
action to the plan has been state
wide. Both Rep. Groat and Trustee
Merriman claim that their cor-
respondence is running almost 100
to one against the plan.
Hampton also criticized the
handling of students who claim to
be self-supporting and the lack
of provision for families with di-
vorced parents who may not be
directly supporting the child.

What do you do when it rains? Most scurry- for the dry safety of a doorway. Others, it seems, remain
undaunted by the prospect of a soaking: these engineering students on North Campus stayed at
work in their surveying class during yesterday's brief shower.


'1 'eclniramn

Interested in seeing how three-
dimensional pictures are taken?
Or how about a tour through a
cyclotron? Both of these plus
many other interesting aspects of
engineering are open to the gen-
eral public as part of "Tech-
nirama '67," the annual engineer-
ing school's open house starting
this Friday.
Exhibits from all fields of en-
gineering will be on display both
on Central and North Campus.
Students and research workers will
demonstrate and explain compli-
vated exhibits.
Exhibits Designed to Challenge
The purpose of the three-day
event, sponsored by the Engi-
neering Council, is to acquaint
University students, interested
high school students and the gen-
eral public with developments in
engineering and the future chal-
lenges in the field of engineer-
Held in the spring in previous
years, "Technirama '67" is being
,held in the fall this year to coin-
cide with other activities in the
Engineering Sesquicentennial Cel-
ebration. Because of the special
celebration, two buildings on
North Campus not previously open
to the general public will be open-
ed for the exhibition-the Cooley
Electronics Lab and the Institute
of Science and Technology.
Laser Photography
The latter will be the site of
a hologram display. The newly de-
veloped field of holography is the
offspring of the laser, and is often
referred to as "laser photography."
Through the process, treated glass
plates are developed which, upon
being placed in the beam of a
laser, produce three-dimensional
image in thin air.
The effect is that of a scale
model mirage, perfect in every de-
tail. Researchers are now work-
ing on a process of continuous pro-

Last week council members had'
asked Fox to rescind the rules,
arguing in a resolution that "stu-

Fox agreed, noting that the
new regulations were "perfectly
consistent with the goals of the

leaving sharp-eyed experts the
difficult task of detecting his
forgeries from the originals.
The Clements Library has
several letters written in Spring's
natural hand. In one letter dated
July 11, 1871, Spring bewails that
"misfortune has reduced me at
this time to the greatest straits."
A 1862 letter records Spring's
promise to "turn up rarities" to
pay a debt.
A critic of Spring's style ob-
served the "very faulty hesita-
ting capital " of the signature
(George *Washington) and the
many similar evidences that the
letter was drawn, not written."
The library was a gift to the
University by William L. Clements
(1861-1934) of Bay City.
One of the finest libraries of
early Americana in the country
Clements contains source mater-
ials - books, manuscripts, maps,
prints, and newspapers - from
Columbus's discovery of America
to the middle of the 19th century.

Since January, 1966, Brown has
been contract relations specialist
for the Milwaukee sub-regional of-
fice of the Office of the Assistant
Secretary of Defense (OASD).
Former Civic Work
Brown attended the State Uni-
versity of Iowa from 1948 to 1950,
Upper Iowa State University from
1959 to 1961, the Alliance Fran-
caise in Paris from 1956 to 1957,
and is presently attending LaSalle-
University Law School. He receiv-
ed his bachelor of arts degree in
sociology and political science
from Upper Iowa State University
in 1961.
His professional 'experience as
contract relations specialist in
Milwaukee called for practice of
inter-group relations, public rela-
tions and skillful investigation. In
his former job, he was responsi-
ble for reviewing the employment
practices and procedures of con-
tractors dealing with the federal
government and investigated and
resolved complaints of discrimina-
tion by federal contractors.
Work with civil rights leaders,
union officials, community groups
and civic agencies to resolve ques-
tions of employment practices were
involved. Brown also coordinated
employment programs between
principal corporate officials and
community groups and leaders.
A letter of commendation Brown
received from the OASD con-
tracts compliance office said, "In
conducting compliance reviews, re-
visits and complaint investiga-
tions, he (Brown), has demon-
strated a keen insight into the
subtleties of race relations and
has engaged in a high level of
technical analysis which resulted
in findings and conclusions that
were based on facts and in all
cases irrefutable by the govern-
ment contractors with which he
has worked."
Prior to being employed by the
OASD contracts office, Brown
managed the Milwaukee Urban
League job development and em-
ployment program from 1964 to
1966. He was a welfare worker
for the Milwaukee County Wel-
fare Department from 1961 to
